PAY increases for lower paid council staff came into effect this month.

West Lothian Council agreed to alter the existing pay structure from April 1 and 748 of their employees have benefitted, after extensive consultation with trade unions. A supplement to all council employees on Band A to bring their hourly rate of pay to £6.85 is now being paid.

Council leader Peter Johnston said: “The council is committed to assisting those on lower incomes and firmly believe that this salary increase will have a positive effect on the lives of hundreds of lower paid members of staff.”
